If radio really is the theater of the mind, then WGN-AM listeners were given a rather unfortunate show recently. As the station interviewed Congressman Danny Davis to discuss his campaign to become Chicago’s next mayor, the conversation was punctured by one of the most distinct sounds known to ears: that of a toilet flushing.
WGN-TV then had its own fun with the startling audio clip when they replayed it for the sake of their viewers, while also noting that there’s a chance Rahm Emmanuel‘s mayoral opponent wasn’t the flusher (though that might prompt even more questions). This, of course, didn’t deter them from poking a little fun at Rep. Davis. “You gotta be able to multitask” to be a good mayor, joked one of the journalists, while another sagaciously mused, “Better out than in.”
When you’re done shuddering, you can watch the WGN clip below to hear the alleged Danny Davis flush for yourself.
